The property was originally owned by a family name Nichols (thus the name of the lake). It was handed down to the sons who each owned half the property. The driveway down the middle of property that leads to the lake was originally a fence line that divided the two pieces of property. The brothers did not get along and their are several stories of their warring on how to maintain the property. My parents bought this piece of property in 1964 and created a camp called "Lakeside Farm Camp", a small all boys camp. The camp has gone through several changes since then but has always been owned by the Edwards family. In 1984 the name was changed to "Cedar Lodge" a coed camp that specializes in English horseback riding and offering high level general camp activities.  Enjoy the peace and quiet of our totally private fresh water lake. Take your boat out for a day of fishing or just chill next to the fire.  Sites are approximately 50 feet from each other. If you want privacy we suggest you book both.

A Lake of your own....
The lake front site was beautiful! I would definitely recommend booking both sites if you want more privacy, as the two sites are very close to each other. My group had a great time.

Site 8 - Little cabins in the woods!
We had a great stay at Cedar Lodge. My sons enjoyed looking at the horses and we loved kayaking on the lake. Make sure you bring lanterns or some form of lamp- the cabins are pretty dark even during the day. It was nice having the shower house and a real/flushing toilet and sink (we didn't take a shower but nice that we could have) Loved that we got to bring our dog. Ducks Inn and the other larger cabin each have one outlet but no lights so bring a power strip or something if you need multiple outlets to cook, charge phones, plug in a lamp etc.

Site 8 - Little cabins in the woods!
Great for what we needed.
We had an enjoyable stay ay Cedar. Plenty of space for three kids to run around. Each cabin has about ten+ bunks and shelves for storage. Our cabin was Raven Haven. The solar powered lights were not working in the cabin and happy we brought our own lanterns etc. I'd also suggest bringing a mat or rug to place at the door to avoid a dirty floor and soap for the bathroom. Our first night we had a cute farm dog protecting us. We later found out he was the neighbor's dog Bruno! He is very friendly. Order your wood before you arrive too. Amy will have it on your cabin porch when you get there. Our only cons, the lake did not seem swimmable for us. We were happy to have family nearby with a spot to swim. Also, some of our neighbors had no camp etiquette. One cabin had a huge speaker and played music so loud we could not hear each other talk. The other cabin had no idea what they signed up for. They moved their picnic table and fire ring in front of our cabin which caused smoke to come into our cabin and created a lot of noise for sleeping kids. Overall, it was great for what we needed and the kids had a great time.

Site 2 - Little cabins in the woods!
The hosts are friendly and helpful but overall we had a lackluster experience and don’t plan to return. The cabins are overpriced and don’t offer any privacy.

A Lake of your own....
Nice campsite by the water. Since we were visiting in the spring the geese were defending their goslings most of the night so it wasn't the most serene campsite as a result. Would give it another shot in the fall though.
